My first PIKE through the ice!

Postby ProFishermanJones » Thu Feb 21, 2013 7:14 pm

Me and my friend went 2/5 today on northern pike and i caught my first pike through the ice!

Heres the video:

Fish was caught on a moose look spoon 1/16 i believe tipped with a full minnow in the middle of the water column.

Hope you enjoy the little video!

That looks like a ball! I never catch pike when I try for them but I can when I am fishing light line. Congrats!

Nice!

As you were fighting that fish, all I could think about was .... I hope he dont cut himself or his suit on that auger with the uncovered blades. Been there done that and had to buy a new ice suit for the next season.
You have made some good video's. I spent the next half hour or so, watching videos on you tube. :thumb:
